March 23- The Sense of An Ending –Julian Barnes
Winner of the 2011 Man Booker Prize--One of The Atlantic's Best Books I Read This Year,
The Sense of an Ending has the psychological and emotional depth and sophistication. The protagonist Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, contends with unexamined aspects of his life when his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance: one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony thought he had his life tidily worked out. But when he is presented with a mysterious legacy, he is forced to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world.
April 27-Ten Thousand Saints --Eleanor Henderson
Enter back in time. The novel is set in the electrified streets of New York City in the 1980’s. Three individuals: Eliza, Jude, and Johnny arrive trying to escape—from everything that has gone wrong, big and small, in their short lives. Their fate is sewn together by their parents’ mistakes and their own, and by the accidental death of a teenage boy. The three pursue the promise of redemption in the unlikely underground scene.
May 25-The Cat's Table—Michael Ondaatje
From the author of The English Patient, comes another spell-binding tale of unusual circumstance. Set In the early 1950s, this is the book of a lifelong journey that begins with a single and spectacular sea voyage. an eleven-year-old boy boards a ship bound for England. His seating assignment at mealtime proves fateful. He is seated at the “cat’s table”—as far from the Captain’s Table as can be—with a ragtag group of “insignificant” adults and two other boys, Cassius and Ramadhin. As the ship crosses the Indian Ocean, the boys tumble from one adventure to another under the noses of unsuspecting, or perhaps inattentive adults . In this precarious position they are first exposed to the magical worlds of jazz, women, and literature by their eccentric fellow travelers
June 22-Night Circus –Erin Morgenstern
Last year we featured the debut novel ,The Tiger’s Wife, and this year we feature this first novel by Erin Morgenstern that has garnered critical praise. Considering herself a spinner of “fairy tales” this book pulls from the author’s imagination a dark and dangerous world where an ambiguous circus arrives unexpectedly and sets up breathtaking displays. The circus, open only at night, is the backdrop to a tale of deadly competition and desire.
What You Missed In 2012-2013
Visiting Analyst Nancy J. Chodorow, Ph.D.
This paper presents ideas in progress about the development of an American Independent Tradition, which the author has tentatively called intersubjective ego psychology. The American Independent Tradition filters and develops ideas found originally in the writings of Hans Loewald. It constitutes a middle ground between egopsychology and relational psychoanalysis.
The tradition recognizes the analytic relationship but preserves the individuality and autonomy of each participant.The paper compares and contrasts the American Independent Tradition with the British Independent Tradition and wonders whether we can find independent traditions in other parts of the analytic world. This presentation of ideas in progress is meant to spark discussion and reflection about the trajectory of psychoanalysis in the United States, about the uses of theory,and about alternative ways of conceptualizing and using the relationship in clinical work.
Nancy J. Chodorow, Ph.D. is Training and Supervising Analyst, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; Geographic Regional Supervising Analyst, Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center; and Faculty, San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis. She is Lecturer on Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School at the Cambridge Health Alliance, and Professor Emerita of Sociology and Clinical Faculty Emerita, University of California, Berkeley. Her books include The Reproduction of Mothering (1978, 2nd. ed., 1999); Feminism and Psychoanalytic Theory (1989); Femininities, Masculinities, Sexualities: Freud and Beyond (1994); The Power of Feelings: Personal Meaning in Psychoanalysis, Gender, and Culture (1999); and Individualizing Gender and Sexuality: Theory and Practice (2012). She is author of numerous articles on comparative psychoanalytic theory and technique, Loewald and the Loewaldian tradition, sexuality, the psychology of women, and gender. She is recipient of numerous awards, prizes, and fellowships. Dr. Chodorow is in private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

"A Psychotherapy for the People: Toward a Progressive Psychoanalysis," A Discussion of his new book by Lewis Aron, Ph.D. Friday, February 1, 2013
How did psychoanalysis come to define itself as being different from psychotherapy? How have racism, homophobia, misogyny and anti-Semitism converged in the creation of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis? Is psychoanalysis psychotherapy? Is psychoanalysis a "Jewish science"?
In this presentation, Lewis Aron will provide an overview of his recent scholarship on the history of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis and their implications for practice and education. Inspired by the progressive and humanistic origins of psychoanalysis, Lewis Aron and Karen Starr pursue Freud's call for psychoanalysis to be a "psychotherapy for the people." The present a cultural history focusing on how psychoanalysis has always defined itself in relation to an "other." At first, that other was hypnosis and suggestion; later it was psychotherapy.
Thomas Janoski, Ph.D., a faculty member of Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center, and a Psychoanalyst and Psychotherapist in private-practice will be the discussant.
Lewis Aron, Ph.D. is the Director of the New York University Post doctoral program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. He is the author and editor of numerous articles and books on psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, including A Meeting of Minds and the Relational Perspectives Book Series. He was one of the co-founders of the journal Psychoanalytic Dialogues. He has served as President of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association; founding President of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP); founding President of the Division of Psychologist-Psychoanalysts of the New York State Psychological Association (NYSPA). He is the co-founder and co-chair of the Sandor Ferenczi Centet of the New School for Social Research, and an Honorary Member of the William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Society. He practices and leads numerous study groups in New York City and Port Washington, NY.

The treatment of borderline and narcissistic patients is one of the most challenging areas in mental health. Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) is an evidence-based psychodynamic psychotherapy developed by Otto Kernberg, M.D., and colleagues that combines the depth of a psychodynamic approach with a structure that facilitates working with personality disordered patients. A growing body of clinical experience and research shows that TFP can help patients achieve character change, resulting in more stable, productive, and satisfying lives.
Two years ago Dr. Barry L. Stern came to Pittsburgh to present a day-long overview of TFP. This year Dr. Stern will return to the PPC to provide a more in-depth TFP training experience that will take place over 3 days and involve 3 independent components.
On Friday, Dr. Stern will provide a 3-hour introduction to TFP based on the 2010 training. The Friday component is open to individuals with no prior TFP training, as well as individuals who wish to attend for purpose of review. Saturday will be divided among three issues central to the conduct of TFP treatment: contracting; technical neutrality and countertransference management; and the treatment of narcissistic pathology.
The Saturday component is open to individuals who have some prior TFP training, which includes the 2010 PPC training, the Friday overview, or other TFP training.
Sunday will feature a peer consultation group lead by Dr. Stern, and modeled on those developed and lead by Drs. Kernberg & Yeomans at the Personality Disorders Institute in New York. This component is limited to 14 participants and will include the presentation and discussion of two cases drawn in advance from the group. Advanced registration is required.

The Psychoanalytic Center (PPC) is delighted to present a Friday
evening lecture and Saturday workshop featuring Drs. Alexandra Harrison and Susan Sherkow, two prominent Analysts who are also accomplished researchers and teachers. They will present their
fascinating work with young children through the use of frame by frame analysis of videotaped play sessions. Drs. Harrison and Sherkow will illustrate their work with emotionally disturbed
youngsters, including those with ADD/ADHA and on the Autism spectrum. Their presentation offers vivid examples of the meaning-making that is possible when adult and child are empathically
Microanalysis of the videotapes, taken by Drs. Harrison and Sherkow in
therapy sessions over time, clearly demonstrates the importance of reviewing what is often overlooked or forgotten in moments of intense interaction. Capturing the minute details of nonverbal and
verbal communication can enhance understanding of the deeper layers of meaning and their associated connections. Observing the vocalizations, gestures, glances, body movements and affect-laden play
interactions on tape, the fragments of communications that are ordinarily missed can help therapists to understand how to enhance the deepening of attunement between individuals.
Viewing the videotapes also demonstrates what may disrupt the process,
making repair more difficult and clinical interaction less effective. Moments of understanding and synchrony are created by capturing the child's signals, which can facilitate attachment. These
videotapes clearly illustrate how crucial it is to be attuned to the other's emotions, while attempting to match those feelings in timing and intensity. When the child's experience is communicated
accurately, true interactional sharing is possible, leading to understanding and change. This kind of interaction can be utilized in schools and homes, as well as in the treatment room with positive
Although Drs. Harrison and Sherkow will demonstrate work with children,
the clinical skills they discuss apply to those who work with all ages. Empathic connection with another that can lead to emotional regulation and control is a skill that therapists, teachers and
parents can learn, replicating the hoped-for good mother/good child interaction that leads to healthy emotional and physical well-being.

Crumb explores the life of Robert (R.) Crumb, the underground cartoonist famous for developing the role of the antihero in comics and for his sharp satire of the 60's and 70's generations. Much of Crumb's work focuses on his own anxiety, depression, and sexual obsessions. Director, Terry Zwigoff, a long-time friend of Crumb's, is allowed an access to his subject that has no boundaries.
From the New York Times:
The art critic Robert Hughes calls Mr. Crumb "the Bruegel of the 20th century." That may be overstating it. But the film's many examples of Mr. Crumb's work present a vision of American life as a phantasmagoric gallery of grotesques that is as gripping as it is harshly funny.
From Rotten Tomatoes:
So well-regarded was the documentary Crumb (1994) that the failure of it and of the same year's equally acclaimed Hoop Dreams (1994) to result in Oscar nominations caused a media furor which forced the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to revamp its documentary nomination process.

Visiting Analyst Weekend with Evelyne Albrecht Schwaber, M.D.
Featuring Case Presentation by Eric Rankin,Ph.D., Professor of Behavioral Health and Psychiatry West Virginia University, Advanced Candidate PPC with Commentary by Dr. Schwaber
The presentation will begin with a ten-minute showing of On Empathy,
Kohut’s last presentation (1981). It completes the circle in the spotlight he
shone, since 1959, on the concept of empathy and its fundamental nature
within psychoanalytic observation and data-gathering. My own pathway in
analytic training which I shall try to illustrate, molded particularly in
comparative supervisory encounters, led me to recognize the extraordinary
power in grappling with the implications in Freud’s groundbreaking
discovery, dening the domain of psychoanalysis: “psychic reality” – that is,
inner reality – “as the decisive kind.” e concept of empathy, understood
not as a theory-specic or technical stance, but as intrinsic to our mode of
listening and observation, may then be viewed as a central dimension
illuminating this intrapsychic domain, -- our psychoanalytic data base.
Clinical examples including citations from the work of Freud and Kohut,
commentary from the late Japanese psychoanalyst, Takeo Doi, and
observations from infant research illuminated by Louis Sander, will be
oered for further elaboration.
1. To discern more subtly diering cues by which individual reality may be revealed in listening to and observing patients’ associations and behaviors,
2. to describe the distinctively analytic mode of observation of the workings of patients’ minds, and
3. to note added dimensions in the illuminative power in a stance of ongoing struggle to listen, and the rewards in capacity for discovery.
2 CE Available for this presentation for psychiatrists, psychologists and Social Workers
The focus will be on details of the data-gathering process, and
on how we conceptualize our clinical methodology, to
consider the distinctions between the hypotheses we generate
and the evidence we have for them. Looking at process notes
of single session(s), we'll try to sharpen our view on nuances of
communications, both verbal and nonverbal (pauses, shifts in
aect, etc). Eort will be made to highlight attendance to
cues we might otherwise overlook, and to reect on some of
our assumptions and inferences – whatever our espoused
theoretical model – to see how these may or may not hold up
or stand in the way of opening yet untried paths.
1. To develop awareness of how one listens to the clinical data, noting distinctions - and
ramications - between hypotheses generated and
evidence for them;
2. To heighten capacity to detect verbal
and non-verbal cues that may be otherwise overlooked,
and to consider further implications in the nature of

Pittsburgh Association for Psychoanalytic Thought Presented My Name Was Sabina Spielrein...
From the My Name Was Sabina Spielrein Website:
Docudrama is a delicate genre especially when it is dealing with history. Many people fell into the temptation of mixing dry facts with colourful romantic images. The filmmaker Elisabeth Márton, who has already proven her ability to realize well thought out films (among others "Way of the Winds”, where she illustrates the life and work of the photographer Lütfi Özkök), finds from the very beginning a happy balance between sensationalism and contemplation, between emotion and knowledge. Márton and her team create an elegant and aesthetically challenging puzzle emplying conventionell methods like old diaries, yellowed photographs and crumpled papers. The short dramatic scenes appear like quickly hurrying shadows. They form and underline a spiritual condition and do not simply function as a dramatic device. That’s good, particularly in relation to the tragic end which shows how Sabina Spielrein and her family once again found themselves trapped between two unforgiving rulers: Stalin and Hitler. Her brothers became victims of Stalin’s terror. Sabina Spielrein was killed in 1942 in Rostov on Don by Nazi soldiers.
Helena Lindblad, Dagens Nyheter 14.10.02
Márton’s deft re-enactments and the actors’ dramatic readings of Spielrein’s own words tell a chilling story, bringing to light both the work of this pioneer and the dark side of psychoanalysis. Documentary and drama carry Spielrein’s life into the crosshairs of warring ideologies (Communism, National Socialism). With a rare gift for melding subjectivity with biographical facts, Márton brings Sabina Spielrein back to life, body and soul.
